After the Spireites’ 3-2 victory over Boreham Wood on Monday, John Sheridan began the post-match press conference by explaining how pleased he was with the result and laid out his ambitions for next season.

“I’m chuffed to bits to finish off at home winning the game,” he said.

“We’ve done well in our last couple of games at home, winning the last four. I always want to win whatever the circumstances.

“I’m just focussing now on next season. I want us to be really thinking that we are going to get out of this league.

“We need to get consistency in our game and I’ve got to get a team that I know what I’m going to get week in, week out.”

Monday’s fixture was Chesterfield’s final home game of the season and Sheridan spoke highly about the backing the supporters have given him since he took charge.

“I thank them for their support,” stated the boss.

“They’ve got right behind me and the team. The support has been great, especially away from home.

“On Friday against Gateshead, to take over 600 hundred is magnificent.

“They’ve been travelling all over the place when the team has been struggling so full credit to them.”

Laurence Maguire wasn’t involved in the matchday squad against Boreham Wood, having featured prominently in recent weeks.

After the game, the Chesterfield manager confirmed that his absence was due to injury, by saying: “He felt his knee yesterday.

“He possibly could have played but I didn’t want to risk him. He was still icing it this morning so I didn’t risk it as a precaution.”

Sheridan finished off by mentioning both Ellis Chapman and Josef Yarney, who have been regulars since signing for the Spireites on loan.

The boss claimed the pair have had a positive impact since coming in and that he is keen to keep hold of them for next season.

“I think they have both done well for us,” said Sheridan.

“I think they’ve enjoyed their time and they are getting a lot of game time.

“They’ve responded really well. Ellis is only 18 and will be an excellent player and Joe is only 21.

“They are two good young players and if there is a possibility to get them back on board I would definitely be interested.”
